The Bandersnatch is a creature in Lewis Carroll's novel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.


Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There[]

She doesn't make an appearance in the book. However, she is described as a swift-moving creature that can expand her neck and has fearsome jaws.

Alice in Wonderland (2010)[]

She appears in the 2010 movie as a jaguar-like creature under control of the Red Queen. She is large, with a barrel chest and fore-paws that are quite dexterous. Its covered in shaggy white fur with dark gray spots, and has a somewhat flat face, with a wide mouth that has multiple rows of sharp teeth and a long tongue. She also has a long tail. She doesn't speak, but seems at least somewhat intelligent. Evidently, she has extremely venomous claws, wounds from which will 'putrefy' unless treating by someone with evaporating skills-barring that, they may also be treated with the saliva of the Bandersnatch on its own.

She appears crashing through a wall in the Mushroom Garden. Red Knights appear from behind her as they attempt to capture Alice's friends while the Bandersnatch chases Alice. Alice stands still believing since this is a dream, the Bandersnatch can't hurt her, but when the Dormouse appears to save her by stabbing out her eye, she slashes Alice's arm while roaring in pain.

She appears again sleeping in her house, going to Alice after she enters her house as she wakes up, but not after she gives her eye back. When Alice tries to open the chest containing the Vorpal Sword the Bandersnatch turns around to strike again, but when Alice shows her swollen wounds, the Bandersnatch felt guilt as she passed out. The next morning when Alice woke up, she cleans her wounds and allows her access to the Vorpal Sword before going back to resting. When Alice is surrounded by Red Knights near the Bandersnatch's house by command of Ilosivic Stayne, she crashes out of the house and escapes to Marmoreal with Alice on her back, thus becoming Alice's ally.

On the Frabjous Day, she appears again with Alice coated in armor on her back. She goes with the White Queen's army to the chessboard battlefield as they come face to face with the Red Queen's army. When the Red Queen orders an attack after the Mad Hatter interferes with the duel between Alice and the Jabberwocky, the Bandersnatch along with the White Queen's army fight in a battle against the Red Knights.

As the Time Freeze's effect's gone, it will crash the pillar, making it unconscious for a while. This is the chance where the player can attack the Bandersnatch. The player must repeat untill 3 times, then The Dormouse will poke its eye and the Bandersnatch will then flee.
  • In Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland game for Nintendo DS, it is the boss of Chapter I. It attacks the player shortly after she is joined by Absolem. The player must use Absolem to fly up to the ceiling in a small gravity pillar on either side of the arena. The player must then lure the Bandersnatch into the larger pillar in the center; this will cause it to fly up and hit the ceiling, stunning it temporarily. While it is in this state, the player must hit the Bandersnatch to damage it. After it gets back to its feet, it must be thrown back to the floor using the same method, stunning it again and allowing the player to attack. The player must repeat this pattern to defeat the boss. After its defeat, the Bandersnatch is ambushed by the Dormouse, who cuts out its eye which is then picked up by Alice. The Bandersnatch later appears guarding the Vorpal Sword in Chapter IV. However, it allows the player to pass when Alice returns its eye.
